The Manhattan consists of two 30-storey condominium towers sitting on a 6-storey shopping mall and a 3-level basement with a total area of 120,000 square metres. A reinforced concrete dual system provides lateral stability to the towers. Bored piles and contiguous bored piles are used as the retaining structure.
Since its grand opening in early 2020, the Manhattan Times Square complex has become the new icon of Medan city. The development successfully combines modern retail with a food and beverage concept, with a luxury condominium above the retail podium. Large exhibition spaces within the podium mall facilitate the arrangement of various events. Premium facilities such as a swimming pool overlooking the city of Medan and a sky lounge at the skybridge level, offer a luxurious lifestyle for the condominium residents. The project is strategically located right at the intersection of two major roads and is currently one of the tallest developments in the city.
Situated in a high seismic region, the structural design of the building required in-depth knowledge of seismic design principles. One of the main design strategies employed to improve seismic resistance of the building design was to structurally separate the iconic skybridge, thereby allowing independent and well-behaving movements between the two identical towers.
